Cotillion is a great opportunity for our 8th Graders to learn formal ballroom dancing by offering them exposure to time-honored dances: Fox Trot, Cha-Cha, Waltz, and Swing Dance. It also offers additional training in social skills and etiquette to help launch them into successful adulthood. The Cotillion Program builds maturity through social dance skills and habits that will aid them in respectful communication with peers.
Cotillion begins in mid-April and continues until mid-May for ten weeks with two lessons per week on Mondays and Tuesdays after school. Cotillion culminates with a final class that parents may attend. At this time awards are given to top students in each dance category. The students are then able to exhibit their new dance and etiquette skills at the formal 8th grade dance.
